Ohio Handmade Cloud


Recommended Posts

Looks like a melted pontil from here, so I would say made in Ohio. To me, it's a very pretty mib. I call this type a snowflake (don't know if anyone else does). What size is it?

How do you get that backlight effect?

It is 1" on the nose.

I use an elevated Plexiglas sheet (so I can work with a mag light underneath) with a dimple ground in to set the marble. I also use a sheet of thin black foam (like felt) on top with a hole centered under the marble. The hole diameter is sized to let the light shine through the mib but not so large that it escapes around the marble. I mess with the backlight angle and intensity to get the right backlight level so as not to washout the marble details.
